Remember the eye-opening Farm Subsidy Database from the folks at the Environmental Working Group? If you're not familiar with it, it's an amazing compilation of data showing who is receiving our tax dollars, which did more to highlight the flaws of our current system than any campaign this year. They're a trustworthy and knowledgeable source of information on farm policy as it relates to sustainable agriculture and rural vitality, and now they have a news feed to keep you informed as the bill passes through the Senate.

New to feeds? Their site has great instructions for beginners.
